The Plum Epiphany

We've been blogging almost a year on The Vine. It's been quite amazing what we've learned about our farm and our animals just by carrying around a camera. One 'sees' differently through the camera's eye! We've always grumbled about our plum trees that were here on the farm - come August there is hardly any plums. We admit they didn't get pruned, forgot to put down fruit fertilizer, etc. Now, in taking a picture of the lovely blooms on one, I had one of those light-bulb moments: the other one isn't blooming yet! Neither are getting pollinated because their 'date' isn't there on time! Eureka!
